    We report an ab initio study of the electric-field gradient tensor (EFG) at Cd impurities located at both nonequivalent cationic sites in the semiconductor In2O3. Calculations were performed with the FLAPW method that allows us to treat the electronic structure of the doped system and the atomic...

    A detailed study is made of electron transport in high electric fields in natural superlattices of the 6H and 4H polytypes of silicon carbide. The electron behavior indicates the appearance and development of Wannier-Stark quantization over a wide range of electric fields, 100-2000 kV/cm. Direct...
